Great, I always wondered why it was "hidden" in AOS before.

Wanted to post this as well. Avast should make the "Close and launch your Avast" button bigger or more visible. Of course the intention is to make people read what is said but there should be one bigger button for closing this message.

That is of course my opinion. Can Avast team share example of Behavior Shield's new detection dialog?

No way! Fixed animation of systray icon

Does this mean the amoeba animation is now finally fixed? :D

Anyone able to see what the Threat Alerts look like?  on my Test System Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, only displays after I click on eicar.com download link, page cannot be displayed lol, and no alert from Avast 17.6.2308 at all

That machine is way underpowered, very sluggish lol, maybe that is why it's not working properly,  try not to beta test on my Windows 10 Pro x64bit 8 core system

Well on this XP system I don't see Avast Cleanup Premium in add remove programs.

I downloaded the full off-line setup file and installed over the top of 71.6.2307, not an update from the UI. I did a custom install.  Given this was meant to be a stand alone installation of Avast Cleanup Premium I didn't check the Performance > Cleanup option.

Unless this would also stop the stand alone installation, I don't know, but it is likely since I see no entry for it in add remove programs.

For me, it was installed when I decided to run it in order to create the video
That's why it now shows up in Programs and Features. :)
